LIFE SPACE INVESTIGATION
Pt was born in 1948, the eldest among 3 sisters and a brother. Fa was a businessman in Ahmedabad. Mo stayed in joint family. Pt was brought up by her maternal grandparents. They brought her to Mumbai. She was very attached to her Mama (MU) and his eldest son. In 1960 when pt was 12 yrs old Mo expired due to Heart ailments. Otherwise she had a very happy childhood. In 68 she completed her SSC. She got involved with a Punjabi boy who was staying as a paying guest at her house in Marine Drive. He was in the catering business and worked in Andheri. There was lot of obvious objections from her family. H wanted to get married quickly. So within 6 months of meeting they got Registered Marriage in 1969. H was the 8th child of his parents among 6 Br and 2 Si. They are all well educated. This made her feel inferior to others. after the marriage, but now she is okay. They took a rented house in Bandra. It was only them two, so there was no adjustment problem. H was a Perfectionist and a good cook. He taught everyone in the family how to cook. He is very possessive and selfish, so she always had some tension about him; but now they are okay together. 1n 1986 Pt started a Wayside Grill Restaurant with the help of the H as a partner and is doing well. She loves the restaurant and meeting new people and being out.
